For Her

Chinese rice paper, thread, 2018, 49"w x 7.6"h x 3"d

Birth, death, illness and old age are human nature. Both of my grandparents passed away in the last three years; I didn’t even have a chance to say goodbye to them. I guess that many people might have had similar experiences. In order to keep the memory of the relatives who already left, I wish I could make something to hold a memorial ceremony for them. In Chinese culture, white paper flowers are usually used for funerals or tomb-sweeping to show respect. In the meantime, the feelings of denial, frustration and depression are going through my body.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
